Recent terrorist attacks in Egypt, and the state of emergency’s answer is creating a threat for Human Rights in the country. Indeed, emergency measures included in a declaration of a state of emergency by President Abdelfattah al-Sissi in the aftermath of three deplorable church bombings in Egypt will do little to resolve the root causes of sectarian attacks against Copts in Egypt and are likely to lead to a further deterioration in human rights, Amnesty International said today. The NGO told that Egyptian Human Rights was
reduced before the state of emergency, so the application of these new measures, could reduce, again, human rights in the country. They recalled also the state of emergency pronunced by former president Mubarak, which facilitated systematic violations and gave Egypt’s security forces the power to detain thousands of people for years in administrative detention without respecting procedural guarantees intended to ensure fair administration of justice. It’s also linked to the law n°98, voted in 2015 which regulates the state of emergency,
but give a lot of power to Egyptian president to reduce freedoms in the country.
